IRTA and the University of Lleida organise the XV Meeting of the Working Group ‘Biological and integrated control of plant pathogens’
The international meeting, one of the most important in the field of biocontrol products, will take place in Lleida
The presentations will focus on the main necessary aspects to bring biological products from the lab to the field
Following the last IOBC-WPRS meeting of the Working Group “Biological and integrated control of plant pathogens” in Berlin in September 2016, IRTA and the University of Lleida will organize a meeting in Lleida (Catalonia). The workshop will be held at the “Centre de Cultures i Cooperació transfronterera” Auditorium of the University.
The theme of the workshop will be “Biocontrol products: From lab testing to product development”. All contributions relating to biocontrol of plant diseases will be welcome, but priority to oral presentations will be given to research on the main necessary aspects to bring biological products from the lab to the field. This meeting will provide an important opportunity for researchers to present their last works on this theme, to share ideas and to discuss common issues.
The aim of the meeting is to bring together students, experts, researchers and implementers of biological control and IPM to discuss potential improvements of biocontrol and integrated control. Near 200 participants from many countries are expected to participate in this meeting.
